There's a huge amount of fakes there. If he wants to be a respected seller he should get his act together.

I tend to only buy the occasional modern cloth item from him.

I do state in my items whether in my opinion they are REPRO or not. If people have problems it's easy DON'T BUY!

Paul as my post you have stated it as a repro I was just stating that in 48 years of collecting have not seen this repro I have all plastic badges as K.K
Please note if I am not happy I never purchase I have purchased from you in the past both on line from your site ,when you used to do ebay and when you did a Yate fair many years ago
David
Hopefully I have a fair idea what I am buying re fakes/repro's

No you don't.

Certainly not on the Sargent Militaria site.

I've just had a very quick scan through a few items and identified 3 well known fake/non original badges; neither reproduction nor fake is mentioned in the item descriptions.

Unless I can't see or find your terms and conditions, which I have looked for, I stand by my "No you don't".

Regards.

Brian

That is the exact problem, your opinion is wrong far more often than what would seem acceptable from a professional dealer.

When I visit your website I see many items that are most obviously fake, items that are complete fantasy and items that are dated false.

So I stay with my initial comment, if you want to be a respected seller get your act together. And remember, we are here to help.
